Gas Flowrates

Gas Flowrates

This calculates the required flowrates from a given gross volume flowrate or mass flowrate.


Mass Flowrate is calculated as follows:
Flowrates_Mass

Symbol Description Units
qm Mass Flowrate kg/h
qvg Gross Volume Flowrate m3/h
ρm Stream Density kg/m3


Gross Volume Flowrate is calculated as follows:
Flowrates_GV

Symbol Description Units
qvg Gross Volume Flowrate m3/h
qm Mass Flowrate kg/h
ρm Stream Density kg/m3


Standard Volume Flowrate is calculated as follows:
Flowrates_SV

Symbol Description Units
qvs Standard Volume Flowrate Sm3/h
qm Mass Flowrate kg/h
ρs Standard Density kg/Sm3


Energy Flowrate is calculated from either of the following methods:
Flowrates_Energy_from_Mass

Symbol Description Units
qe Energy Flowrate MJ/h
qm Mass Flowrate kg/h
CVmass Calorific Value (Mass Based) MJ/kg

Flowrates_Energy_from_Volume

Symbol Description Units
qe Energy Flowrate MJ/h
qvs Standard Volume Flowrate Sm3/h
CVvol Calorific Value (Volume Based) MJ/m3
